Quilt for kindness Plus Giveaway!

In COLLABORATION with Crafters Companion.

You may well already know this, but I am a bit of a hoarder when it comes to fabric. I have a beautiful glass antique cabinet in my study, rammed full of the most beautiful fabrics. Up until recently I was happy to just have them there. Just in case of crafting. But this year, I am all about stash busting. Which is why the quilt for kindness project appeals to me.

Sew Inspired, are running a four-series long Quilt-along where readers will be taught how to make a complete quilt throughout the year, as well as free tutorials through our Facebook page. So it’s perfect for anyone who has sewn a bit before but never quilted. Just like me!

Their aim is two-fold; firstly to be an educational piece for readers who are new to quilting, to inspire them to have a go, but also to encourage readers to donate their finished quilt to a really worthwhile cause Project Linus UK . I had never heard of the cause before, but after having a read. I was even more into the idea of turning my fabric stash into a quilt for Kindness.

What is project Linus UK?

Project Linus UK is a volunteer organisation and they have a large network of volunteers across the UK who donate their time and skills to create beautiful blankets and quilts. The aim is to provide a sense of security and comfort to sick and traumatised babies, children and teenagers through the provision of new home made patchwork quilts and knitted blankets, and give volunteers across the UK the opportunity to contribute to their local community.

  1. I have never quilted before but I can imagine it would be such a lovely creative outlet. I hadn’t heard about Project Linus so great to learn more about that – thanks for linking up to #coolmumclub x

  2. I love these groups – our library has a knitting group that sends their blankets and beanies to an African nation (I forget which). It’s nice – you get the joy of crafting but it doesn’t just sit in a cupboard, and it does good to those in need. #Stayclassymama

  3. I have always wanted to try quilting, so winning this starter kit would be perfect. I love home crafting ✂💞

  4. I’m teaching myself to make children’s clothes but quilting is something that I really want to get into as I want to be able to learn skills that I can teach my kids and also in many years to come can make things for grandchildren.

  5. I have completed one quilt before and am collecting fabrics for another. I don’t really have any quilting tools yet, so these would make life much easier next time.

  6. I’ve never quilted but I’ve had a bag of stuff I want to quilt with for nearly 7 years!! Totally entered! Thanks for linking up to #ablogginggoodtime last week!

  7. I have never done any quilting but would love to have a go. I used to make all Hannah’s dresses and knit her cardigans but that was thirty years ago, mainly just do curtains or alterations with the odd bit of bunting now and again.

  8. i am a quilting returner after many years I love doing it before I had children then lost the time to do it! children are older now and I had revisited my old hobby!

  9. I have been sewing for years but never got the hang of quilting. With grandchildren on the way now this is something that I would love to make for each one to treasure as they grow up.

  10. I’ve had a little go at quilting but I’ve never made a whole quilt, just a cushion cover and purse. I’d love to learn more about it as I see so many gorgeous quilted projects I’d love to make.

  11. I have done a fair bit of sewing and have made patchwork cot quilt covers but have never tried quilting.

  12. Never quilted before bu really want to try and make a little quilt for my future grandaughter who arrives in Sept

  13. I made a crib quilt for my granddaughter in pink, pale grey and white. It was my first quilt and not all the seams lined up perfectly, but it still looks quite nice. I’d love to attempt a full size quilt for our master bed, I have already started stashing various pieces of fabric. I’m going with a pale green / mid green / white colour scheme with some botanical prints and some geometric prints. Still ahven’t decided on a design though, most of the ones I like seem awfully complicated.
